Public inquiry and Consultation Committee

The special rules of disclosure (public inquiry and/or consultation committee) were made for diverse reasons, before the delivery of a planning, environmental or allotment permit, if the legislation requires it, and always before the adoption of a town planning regulation.

Please note: the Town Planning counter will exceptionally be closed on Friday 28 February 2020. Therefore, the submission of permit applications or other documents and the consultation of files subject to public inquiry will not be possible.

Please note: on 1 September 2019, a thorough reform came into force of the Brussels Planning Code (CoBAT - BWRO) and the Environmental Permit Ordinance (OPE - OMV). This reform made major changes to the procedures for the submission, handling, delivery and appeal of planning and environmental permits (certificates): reform of town planning legislation
